CINEMA’S CUDDLIEST & CREEPIEST ZOMBIES
Monday, June 15 by

With Dead Snow opening this weekend, we realized that there is nothing more terrifying than a Nazi Zombie. It would take the combined efforts of Indiana Jones and David Hasselhoff to strike down such a foe. And there’s no way those guys are willing to stand together. It also made us think of the variety of zombies we’ve seen throughout film and television history. Here are a select few ranked from loveable to sinister.CLICK IMAGE TO ENLARGE– MATT SEARS Other Junk You Might Like:Six Degrees of Ramis & Apatow

‘HANGOVER’ #1 AT THE BOX OFFICE FOR THE SECOND WEEKEND
Sunday, June 14 by

Zach Galifianakis is sittin' pretty once more after this weekend.As Jeffrey Tambor said to him and Justin Bartha in The Hangover, "Never leave when you're on a heater."  Well, The Hangover's heater continues, as it took top spot once more with an estimated $33.4 million.  The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 opened up at #3, disappointing for the studio, but in line with Screen Junkies readers' predictions.  Eddie Murphy's Imagine That opened with a paltry $5.7 million and the #6 spot.  Sadly, this probably means Norbit 2 has been fast tracked.  This Weekend's Top Five:1. The Hangover ($33.4 million)2. Up ($30.5 million)3. The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 ($25 million)4. Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian ($9.6 million)5. Land of the Lost ($9.2 million)[Box Office Figures: Lee's Movie Info][Image: Flickr]

TEASER FOR MICHAEL MOORE’S AS-YET-UNTITLED ‘BAILOUT’ DOCUMENTARY
Saturday, June 13 by

Teaser for Michael Moores UNTITLED BAIL OUT DOCUMENTARY – Watch more Funny VideosThe new teaser for Michael Moore's Untitled Bailout Documentary has arrived, and it doesn't give too much away, other than Michael Moore's angry again.  "Angry Moore" is really evident here.  He breaks out his classic sarcastic Moore voice, bringing his pitch up an octave while gently coaxing the audience to bend over for the banks.  "This time it's personal" reads the text at the end of the trailer.  This time, I believe it.  Kudos to Moore's marketing team for borrowing the tagline from Jaws 4: The Revenge.

Fifty Dead Men Walking Trailer – Watch more Movie TrailersAbove is the trailer for the new thriller, 50 Dead Men Walking, based on a true story.  Jim Sturgess plays Martin, a guy from west Belfast in the late 1980s who is recruited by the British Police to spy on the IRA. He works his way up the ranks as a volunteer for the IRA whilst feeding information to his British handler and saving lives in the process; until one day he is exposed, captured and tortured to within an inch of his life. He escaped dramatically by throwing himself from a tower block window and is still in hiding today.  Hopefull the movie isn't completely true, or else I just ruined a key plot point.  Have a good weekend!!!Here are your weekend links:   Samantha Harris           Make an 80s movie!      I'm Charles Darwin, asshole          Top Movie Badasses       Glowing Chess Board!          MegaShark Review!                 Twisted Sims                     Worst Cat Vids              Kimbo Slices Back         Ashton vs. Madea            Combat Zone Wrastlin'!         New Miss USA?              Cleveland!

LINKIN PARK’S ‘NEW DIVIDE’ VIDEO FROM ‘TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF THE FALLEN’
Friday, June 12 by

The new music video – or "clip" – for Linkin Park's "New Divide" from the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen soundtrack was released – or "dropped" – on myspace today.  You can check it out after the jump.  It has a few shots from the film that many of us haven't seen – or "peeped" – yet, including some shots of what looks like Bumblebee fighting Ravage. In traditional soundtrack music video fashion, the film moments are intercut with shots of the band performing.  And it's Linkin Park, so the whole thing's like a giant battle to see who can out-melodramatize the other.  Lyrics are also posted after the jump.  What they have to do with GIANT F**KING ROBOTS is anyone's guess.

MARCUS NISPEL TO DIRECT ‘CONAN’ UPDATE. NO MORE BRETT RATNER.
Friday, June 12 by

BY THE ANVIL OF CROM! Usually, news about a guy who’s made a career out of directing remakes is not very exciting; it’s kind of annoying.  The knock on them is obvious:  they're never as good as the source material, and they're usually flashy flicks that lack substance. That's what makes this piece of news so darned interesting.  It was announced that Marcus Nispel, the guy who remade both The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the Thirteenth, is on board to direct a remake of Conan.  Yeah, it's a lackluster little bit of information but it's good news.  Why?  Because now we know Brett Ratner isn't touching the movie any more.

PETER JACKSON TO SHOOT EVERYTHING IN 3D NOW
Friday, June 12 by

In an interview with Marketsaw – a blog devoted entirely to 3D filmmaking – Steve Schklair, the CEO of 3ality Digital Systems claims that Lord of the Rings helmer Peter Jackson will be shooting all of his directorial efforts using 3ality's technologies.  You can read the whole article at Marketsaw.  Sites like ScreenRant suggest that Jackson's devotion to 3D from now on will help shift exhibitors over to the 3Dark Side, which they have been reluctant to do because of retrofitting costs and the lack of 3D movies.  Personally, I'm a fan of 3D technology, from the the way UP used it organically in the story to the stuff that's used shamelessly by films like My Bloody Valentine 3D.  Part of me wishes Drag Me to Hell had been in 3D.  Some of the film's shock moments are perfect for the third dimension. Here's hoping that Jackson considers going into his back catalogue and 3D-ifies flicks like Meet the Feebles and Dead Alive.  I can't think of a more visceral theatrical experience than an AIDs-ridden rabbit vomiting forth upon the audience in the movie theater and the audience in the film.  That's, like, sooooooo metaaaaaaaaa… Meet the Feebles Vomit – Watch more Funny Videos

KICKASS EVERYMAN FIGHT SUITS FROM FILM
Friday, June 12 by

In general, when it's time to kick some ass, it's time to kick some ass.  Forget what you're wearing and get ready to rumble. This philosophy has been adopted throughout the entire history of cinema, the most recent example being seen in last weekend's #1 film, The Hangover.  Above: Mr Chow (Ken Jeong) makes a balls-out attack on Phil (Bradley Cooper).  Chow's balls are fully out in the theatrical release. But what about other scenes, guys who find themselves fighting in outfits that strike us today as either ridiculous or insanely awesome, or most likely, both? Superheroes, of course, would be cheating, because we all know they almost always look nuts cleaning up the city in their plastic nipples and oversized codpieces.

‘THE WAY YOU DON’T DIE’ CLIP FROM ‘THE HURT LOCKER’ + 8 NEW IMAGES
Thursday, June 11 by

THE HURT LOCKER – The Way You Dont Die Clip – Watch more Movie TrailersIn the latest released clip from Summit's upcoming war flick about the military's bomb squad in the Middle East, Colonel Reed (David Morse) gets Staff Sgt. Wiliam James (Jeremy Renner) to open up about just how many bombs he's blown up working for the EOD.  I've seen the film and when put in the full context of the story, even this little dialogue piece is tense.  I kept thinking Renner's character was gonna get the sh*t chewed out of him by Morse for being a loose cannon.  Turns out Morse's character's a bit of a wildman himself, I guess. We also have eight new still images , which you can see after the jump!

‘CHOP SHOP’ SCENE FROM ‘TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF THE FALLEN’ NOW AVAILABLE IN ENGLISH
Thursday, June 11 by

CHop Shop from REVENGE OF THE FALLEN – Watch more Movie Trailers This same scene has been available in German for about a day now and… I think I liked it better when I had no idea what 'Wheelie' was saying.  It's the first time the majority of us have heard the pesky little Decepticon's English-language voice and he comes off like some comedian working the room up in the Catskills.  I hope Revenge of the Fallen takes time to explain how some of the Transformers came to adopting regional colloquialisms and accents, unlike the first film.  I kept waiting to see the deleted scene from that one where Jazz crash lands on Earth and immediately devours every Wayans Brothers movie he can get his giant metal hands on.  Word up, Optimus!

STEPHEN SOMMERS NOT FIRED FROM ‘G.I. JOE’ MOVIE
Thursday, June 11 by

The interweb was aflurry all morning with rumors that GI Joe: Rise of Cobra director Stephen Sommers had been taken off the movie and locked out of the edit room.  The reason?  According to some, the film was testing the lowest a film from Paramount has ever tested.  And Paramount put out Britney Spears's Crossroads. Well, turns out rumoring is half the battle (G.I. JOOOOOE!!!), because Movieline.com reports – with 100% assurance, mind you – that the whole story is bullsh*t.  Read Movieline's investigative report here. I'm a fan of the original Mummy.  After that, I can't say I've been in love, infatuated, or even vaguely felt anything like an emotion toward Stephen Sommers's films.  In fact, I think I remember my therapist chastising me for "putting up a wall" when he asked me if he should go see Van Helsing opening weekend.  So it's not surprising that there were rumblings of Sommers being scrutinized for his approach to filming a beloved '80s property. 

DENZEL & TRAVOLTA CAREER TIMELINE
Thursday, June 11 by

This Friday, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 opens and marks the first time two of cinema’s larger-than-life icons star opposite each other. Both born in 1954, John Travolta and Denzel Washington have had storied, if not tumultuous careers. We’ve decided to map out their careers like New York MTA maps train routes in the hopes it will shed some light on the box office success of 'Pelham.  Is their train right on time or did it just miss the station by a New York Minute?

NIC CAGE DID NOT HIRE A VOODOO PRIESTESS

SCORSESE’S ‘SHUTTER ISLAND’ GETS A TRAILER
Wednesday, June 10 by

Martin Scorsese's newest film, Shutter Island, a drama set in an insane asylum got a new trailer today and… well… it looks suitably insane.  Some may say it's off-the-hook insane.  Those people would possibly be using a combination of hyperbole and street slang.  Check out the trailer after the jump and see star Leonardo DiCaprio descend into the deepest, darkest bowels of madness, where even Michelle Williams manages to still look really hot.

VASSUP?! NEW ‘TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF DER FALLEN’ CLIPS… IN GERMAN!
Wednesday, June 10 by

I want so badly for the German dub to refer to Optimus Prime as David Hasselbot. Two new clips from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen just surfaced on the 'nets today, and you're in for some real spoilers, if you speak German.  Otherwise, it's just a lot of robot carnage.  I hate missing all the nuances in Michael Bay films… Check out this clip, where Tyrese says, with great gravitas, "Oh, nein!" as the Decepticon known as Demolishor shows off how accurate Transformers are with their etymology.  I can't help but imagine if Will Smith were reacting to this, he would have chimed in with an "Awww HELL nein!"

COMMANDO GETTING A REMAKE?
Wednesday, June 10 by

Remember when I said they'd make a Commando sequel before they'd reboot the film?  I lied.  Actually, I never said anything about anything.  But the rumors have started flooding in, and Slashfilm has found several instances of corroborating evidence that indeed, a Commando sequel just might be in development… and that it might have a star already willing to take up the John Matrix mantle. The trail of clues starts in Australia, where, according to JoBlo, there's an article in a magazine called RCI that simply states a remake is being developed. Okay.  But what of it?  I heard Fox just optioned the remake of Tom Rothman's dream he had last night, a dream that was essentially a reënvisioning of Garfield 2. But there's more.  CineFools.com also has picked up on the possibility that Dwayne Johnson is attached to the film already.  I don't know how I feel about this.  I think I have to meditate on it by watching the GREATEST opening credits sequence of all time… from the original Commando.  You can watch it, too, after the jump.

MICKEY ROURKE IS WHIPLASH IN ‘IRON MAN 2′
Tuesday, June 9 by

Above is the first official look at Mickey Rourke as baddie "Whiplash" in Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2: Our Secrecy Has Become Self-Parody.  Originally, the character of Whiplash was female, but has since been reënvisioned as a dude whose real name is "Marc Scarlotti" within Marvel's Ultimate line of titles.  Here's a pic:On the downside, the Rourke version of Whiplash kinda looks like a pirate from the future.  On the upside, the Marvel comics version of Whiplash looks like DC Comics' Bane character.  And something tells me that the image of Rourke is pre-official costume.  That "something" is the official Iron Man 2 Whiplash concept art, which you can see after the jump.

The death of David Carradine grows more and more bizarre by the day. At first it was believed that the actor had committed suicide. Later it was ruled as an accidental death due to a session of auto-erotic asphyxiation gone awry. Now, the family's lawyer is claiming that Carradine was killed by ninjas because the Kung Fu star was trying to uncover the shadowy doings of the secret society.Wait.
